UVI Research Day to Feature Presentations on Topics that Affect the VI

The public is invited to the University of the Virgin Islands' fourth annual Research Day scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 9, in the UVI Sports and Fitness Center on the St. Thomas Campus and in the Great Hall on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix. 

Research Day will showcase UVI student and faculty research with a variety of displays on community issues such as intimate partner violence, environmental health in industrial areas on St Croix, marijuana’s legalization in the Virgin Islands, gang violence and social media’s effect on the Caribbean. 

“On Research Day the entire Virgin Islands public is invited to see exciting research that is taking place in all the colleges and schools of UVI,” said Dr. Frank Mills, UVI vice provost for Research and Public Service. “We aim to expose high school teachers, counsellors and their seniors to the fields of study that could inflame the seniors’ interest in a profession.” More information is available in a news release on the Media Section of the UVI website - – and from this direct link.
